This lion looks like a shortfin lionfish..It has brown and white stripes. He seems to like to hang out just below the surface of the water

Yeah. Mine would eat out of my hand if I let him. He tries to take the food when I'm feeding the eel. Here are pics of my lions. I no longer have the fuzzy dwarf but the zebra is growing and full of himself.

The fuzzy can get up to 7 inches. I feed mine raw shrimp and fish pieces as well as dried krill. They also get an occassional guppy.(although I'm not suggesting you use this as a food source. It's not a natural food for them. I only feed out my baby guppies if they are born with bent spines or something) But not often. It's a great little lion. When I had my fuzzy, he took out a 2 inch blue damsel that was the same size as him. He didn't live long after that. They will eat every time you feed them but try not to over feed. And because they are gulpers, they will attempt to eat anything they think they can fit in their mouths. Have fun with him.
